About Nageela

Situated on our home campus of 45 breathtaking acres in rural Sullivan County in upstate New York, Camp Nageela offers campers completing grades 3-10 an extraordinary four-week experience of fun and character growth. Camp Nageela has welcomed thousands of happy campers to our program for over 25 years and we want YOU to join us this summer!


Are you looking for a camp experience that will help you create friendships that will last a lifetime? Staff members that are warm and caring and will help you make the most of the overnight camp experience? A program that will provide non-stop fun and the development of new skills and abilities? Look no further. Welcome to Camp Nageela!


The Camp Nageela experience is comprised of a wealth of activities and specialty programming. Designed to cater to the interests of each individual camper, our array of options satisfies those who envision themselves either playing sports, paintballing, canoeing, woodworking, or enjoying any of our other varied activities. Our extensive program, experienced on our expansive grounds, provides Nageela campers with the opportunity to develop their skills while experiencing the summer of a lifetime!


Known for their enthusiasm and idealistic spirit, Camp Nageela staff members are selected for their ability to create a warm and nourishing environment. Our 3:1 camper-to-staff ratio ensures caring, individualized attention and rich relationships that embrace and encourage the campers to grow. Counselors at Nageela are full of life and haven’t forgotten what it’s like to be a camper!


TeeNageela, our fast-paced teen program for campers completing grades 8 & 9, provides the best of Camp Nageela, plus a special twist designed for teenagers. Teens experience accelerated fun while taking part in leadership training opportunities. Campers completing 10th grade enjoy all the great activities of TeeNageela while also taking the position of “Junior Staff”. They fill positions such as waiter/waitress or staff assistant and receive special privileges.

At Camp Nageela we strive to ensure healthy living through appropriate rest time, fluid intake and sunscreen protection stations. Well-balanced, nourishing and delicious Kosher meals and snacks are prepared daily. We are delighted to meet any special dietary needs your child may have. Campers and staff enjoy air-conditioned hotel-like accommodations and clean, spacious facilities. Our fully equipped infirmary is staffed with trained medical personnel, and our “Camp Mom” is available around the clock for camper care & “away from home mothering”.

Each summer, over 200 campers have the opportunity to engage their Jewish heritage and culture through exciting and meaningful informal discussion groups. In addition, we are happy to assist your child in preparing for his/her Bar/Bat Mitzvah.

Thanks to Nageela’s benefactors, we are able to offer an unforgettable summer at an unbeatable price. As you explore our website, we are sure you will discover that Camp Nageela is the place for your child this summer. If you would like additional information, please call 516-374-1528.
